Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 865 flagship is here — without integrated 5G

高通将发布骁龙865,但仍然没有集成5G基带



Qualcomm has officially announced its next-generation flagship processor for phones — the Snapdragon 865 — but it’ll still need a separate 5G modem to enable 5G instead of an integrated 5G modem built right into the chipset. Traditionally, that means more expensive, power-hungry phones than an integrated solution.
Announced alongside the 865 is Qualcomm’s other new processor, the Snapdragon 765, which will feature integrated 5G. However, it’ll be part of a less powerful processor than the 865, which will likely power the next wave of Android flagships in 2020.

高通公司已经正式官宣其下一代旗舰手机处理--器骁龙865,但该处理器仍然需要外挂单独的基带才能支持5G,而非将5G基带集成在芯片组内部。传统上来说、这意味着会比集成基带的方案更昂贵、也更耗电。
与骁龙865同时发布的、还有另一款全新处理器--骁龙765,该款处理器将采用集成5G基带。然而,这款处理器的性能要比骁龙865弱一些,后者可能在2020年为下一波安卓旗舰机提供芯片组。

Qualcomm has been teasing that it would offer Snapdragon chips with integrated 5G modems since February. It even confirmed at IFA 2019 that it would be offering a 700-series processor with integrated 5G. But it’s still odd that Qualcomm would choose the less powerful chip to serve as its initial integrated 5G product, leaving the next-generation mobile standard as a separate (albeit mandatory) component for its top-of-the-line flagship 865 model.

今年2月以来,高通公司一直在暗示其将要把5G基带集成到骁龙芯片组里面,甚至在2019年国际电子消费品展览会(IFA)上还确认了这一消息:高通将提供一款700系列、集成了5G基带的处理器。但高通公司选择了性能较弱的芯片、作为其初代的集成5G基带的产品,而其下一代顶级旗舰处理器--骁龙865、则采用了单独的外挂5G基带,这就显得有点奇怪了。



the current-generation 855, by requiring a separate 5G modem (in this case, the second-generation X55 model).

相反的是,骁龙 865将以与目前的骁龙855类似的方式来提供5G支持,这种方案需要单独的5G基带(在这一方案中,采用的是第二代X55基带)。

In fact, if manufacturers want to use the new Snapdragon 865, they’ll have to support 5G — Qualcomm tells The Verge that the 865 and X55 are a package deal, there’s no modem on board the 865 at all, and you can’t just make a 4G phone with the 865 by using a different 4G modem.

事实上,如果手机制造商想使用新的骁龙865,他们就必须支持5G。高通公司告诉本网站,骁龙865和X55基带是捆绑销售的,骁龙865上根本没有基带。并且,如果你要使用骁龙865、你就无法使用其他型号的4G基带来生产手机!!



Correction, 6:58PM ET: Qualcomm has confirmed to The Verge that the Snapdragon 865 will be exclusive for 5G phones and will require the companion X55 modem. This article originally stated that manufacturers would be able to offer 4G-only devices using the Snapdragon 865. We regret the error.

更正:美国东部时间下午6:58:高通公司已确认骁龙865将只支持5G手机,并将需要配套的X55基带。本文最初声明“手机制造商将能够采用骁龙865推出4G手机”,我们对这一错误表示遗憾。
